The property

If you have ever dreamt of waking up to the sounds and smells of the sea, then this semi-detached cottage in Cleggan, County Galway, is the one for you. Sea views can be enjoyed from most rooms at this cosy Cleggan cottage, which backs onto the water and is just yards from the village's small fishing harbour. Enjoy a cup of tea in bed, listening to the seagulls overhead, or a leisurely breakfast watching the morning sunlight glint off the waves of the ever-changing sea outside the open plan living area. A day out from this cottage in Cleggan can take so many forms, from a walk on the beach or a trip on the ferry to Inishbofin Island, a morning deep-sea angling, an afternoon exploring the beautiful Connemara National Park, or an evening out in the vibrant town of Clifden. On returning to your cottage in Cleggan, what better way to relax than in the sauna? Then, cook up a storm with delicious local produce (maybe some fresh seafood?) and settle in for the evening, ready to see even more of this beautiful county the very next day.
